by james alfano
James asked: The number of black greats in the 1950's is amazing yet few of them
Why was this?
Rick answered: James, thank you for your question.
I would refer you to some internet sites which have done some great research, certainly are far better qualified on the history, to provide some insight into your question.
If you run a search for,"tracing black players MLB impact from Jackie Robinson"... there are many articles available on the subject.
I know you will find the articles informative.
Yours in baseball,
